[ZCast in VentureBeat] ZCast wants to be the defacto mobile podcasting app for creators and consumers

Fledgling podcasting platform ZCast has unveiled a notable update this week, as the Israeli startup looks to cement its position in the competitive audio-broadcasting realm. Founded initially as a mobile collaboration tool called Zula in 2012, ZCast is the result of a pivot back in February this year that effectively gave birth to a whole new company with a fresh team and new founders. The company has also secured around $300,000 in private investment, though the previous incarnation had nabbed around $4 million from the likes of Microsoft Ventures, among others. Read more on...

OurCrowd’s portfolio company Zula featured in The Next Web

OurCrowd’s portfolio company Zula was featured in The Next Web, a leading technology news website. The company has created ZCast, a social podcasting platform for producing high-quality, multi-member podcasts from an iPhone. I thought Opinion was the easiest possible way to create a podcast, but it turns out I was wrong. ZCast is an app out today for iOS and the Web that makes live, interactive podcasting a cinch. Tightly integrated with Twitter, you sign in, tap a button, give your podcast a title and away you go. Adding other people to a conversation is as simple as entering their Twitter handle and sending an invite. If they have the app, they’ll get a push notification or otherwise you’ll send them an automated tweet inviting them to download it and get involved. Zula raised $385,000 from OurCrowd investors in May 2013 and $407,022 in a follow-on funding round in June 2014. Read more on The Next Web...
